Teaching and Learning through the Arts (TLTA) Professional Learning Labs



Explore our backward design process for unit development.




Receive feedback from SCEA Directors and refine units based on guided reflections.




Deliver quality arts instruction to your students through arts education, arts integration, or problem-based learning.

Professional Learning Labs provide pre-service teachers, classroom teachers, arts specialists, teaching artists, and administrators opportunites to strengthen arts-based teaching and learning through concept-based unit development. Professional learning lab model experiences contextualized with K-12 students and include resources that have been fieldtested in the K-12 classroom. As we share our process for unit planning, reflection, and delivery- we guide participants through a backward design process process employing the center's approach to concept-based arts integration. All professional learning labs provide participants with continuing education credits administered by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (1 credit = 10 hours).
